Teaser Tuesday 11/25/2014: “A Tale of Two Cities”

It was the best of times … it was the worst of times … it was time to read A Tale of Two Cities, that Dickensian classic, which I somehow never picked up until it appeared for free on the BookBub mailing list.

This artwork is now confirmed as a “go” for the cover. Canada, that wonderful land of maple leaves, syrup, and vizslas, once again delivers the goods. Thanks, Emilie!

Aldric seemed reluctant to subject any of his candelabra or other finery to her skills, so a rather undercooked piece of meat—which no one but Cynidece had been interested in eating—was chosen as the unlucky victim. Sitting all fat and pink on a wooden carving board, it had no idea what was in store for it.
